Vintage Pens: Esterbrook Transition
Vintage Pens: 4654 Esterbrook Transition
Fountain Pen Nib Size: O
Unique Esterbrooks are especially fun pens. We hope you get a big kick out of this Esterbrook Transition fountain pen for both its history and its nib. In the late 1940s when Esterbrook was transitioning from its Dollar Pens to J-model pens, it had a lot of leftover Dollar Pen barrels. Instead of letting them go to waste, the company simply paired the old barrels with the new J-model caps! The cap on this pen has a non-traditional 3-line black plastic jewel. All the more fun and fascinating is that this pen comes with a rare oblique 2314-M nib! When you find the sweet spot, it is a smooth nib with a stub quality meant for right-handed people to make their writing really pop! Click the headline for a close-up. 12.3cm capped.
